Fade of the Day – Lee Engineer Cap (10+ Years, Unknown Washes & Soaks)

Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing some of the craziness that gets sent to our fade inbox on a regular basis. But every once in a while, we get a denim gem like this 40-year-old Lee Engineer Cap with the story to match.

Submitted by Joshua Burgess from Florida, this hat was worn by his father since 1974 while working on the local cypress mill and has all of the marks to show it. From the tattered holes to the dark underside of the brim, these are truly unique fades on an even more unique piece. It’s rare to see the old pieces like this not only held onto by their original owners so long, but Josh tells us his pops still rocks it on “special occasions” too! We hope he’s rocking it right now because he more than earned this Fade of the Day.
